Garry Smith - EKS Construction

Garry Smith
Director, EKS Construction 


I have known Garry Smith for six years now. I first met him when I had an access ramp installed through a Disability Facilities Grant given to me by Fenland District Council in 2006. Whilst Garry was carrying out the work, I asked if he could design and lay a patio for me, as I was so impressed with his work.

In 2011, I needed the whole of my front garden to be dug up to accommodate a large drive for my new adapted car. Again this was done with the aid of a Disability Facilities Grant. Garry/EKS has done a super job and I am very pleased indeed.

I have no hesitation in recommending Garry’s company EKS Construction, for all groundworks. They are clean and tidy and take a pride in their work, the quality of which is outstanding. Garry and those who work for him are extremely trustworthy and friendly a quality which is hard to find these days.

The only way to ensure your new driveway will be robust enough to last for years to come is with thorough preparation of the ground. This is why it is our top concern, from preparing the sub-base, to removal of vegetation and the laying of the correct depth of crushed hardcore.

We also ensure that the site has the correct amount of compacted sand (not the excessive amount that some contractors use as a quick fix for poorly compacted land), the right drainage system where necessary and adequate kerb restraint edges.

As for the type of materials used for the drive itself, we can supply and install all of these options:

Tarmac drives

Nowadays there is a great choice of tarmac colours and finishes so we can ensure your drive is perfectly in keeping with the surrounding area. The tarmac can be complemented by features such as contrasting brick borders to create something that will add to the value and look of your property and will not be somewhere just to park your car.

Concrete drives

The traditional bed of sand and cement is still a robust driveway material and with block edgings can look attractive too.

Block paving

This is an increasingly popular material for driveways, paths and patios. Block paving looks much better than standard paving flags and the blocks are available in different sizes, colours and textures. More about block paving.
